The Dubai Police has fined a number of motorists and seized their vehicles for committing serious traffic violations during rainy weather, including driving recklessly and performing stunts on wet roads and driving in a way that poses a danger to themselves and others.
Major General Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, Director of the General Department of Traffic Police, said they summoned the unruly drivers who appeared in videos circulated across social media channels performing stunts and driving recklessly across the emirate’s roads during the rain. He added that one of the reckless drivers collided with another motorist who was driving orderly nearby.
Maj. Gen Al Mazroui stressed that road safety is everyone’s responsibility pointing out that Dubai Police’s ‘We Are All Police’ programme enables public members to take part in ensuring the safety and security of Dubai roads and streets by reporting reckless drivers and traffic violations conveniently via the Dubai Police smart app or calling Dubai Police’s call centre (901). He further noted that all reports are handled by the Department’s traffic experts thoroughly and with extreme confidentiality.
